SilverSneakers Qigong: Cindy Dennis 

Qigong – Balance and harmony. Something we all strive for in our lives. Did you know we can attain these through simple breathing and movement? These are the 2 components of Qigong, a 5,000 year old Chinese healing system. The core belief of this system is that we are surrounded and permeated by energy, life force, or “qi” that flows throughout our bodies. Chinese medicine teaches that if this energy does not flow smoothly in the body, if it gets “stuck”, disease results. Through the deep, rhythmic breathing and slow, fluid movements of Qigong, we can calm our systems and bring mind and body into balance, creating a sense of calmness and harmony.

11:30 – 12:30 pm

Pilates 1:  Susan Stumpf

Pilates addresses the body as a whole, correcting asymmetries and weaknesses of your body bringing it back into balance. The method works to strengthen the abdominals and back, the deep postural muscles which support the spine and allow you to sit and stand in better alignment and move with more ease, precision and zest!

1:30-2:30 pm

Chair Pilates:   Susan Stumpf

Are you concerned about your posture or balance?….and would you like to have fun while improving these concerns?  Then come join us at AGFW on Wednesdays at 1:30 as we launch our newest class CHAIR PILATES. Chair Pilates is a foundations  level class meant for those who currently are unable to get on and off the floor. This class will focus on Proper Posture, Diaphragmatic Breathing, and Strengthening the Core muscles.  While much of the work will be done seated, we will also incorporate standing work to strengthen the hips, and improve alignment and balance. Because Pilates is a Mind-Body Program, we will exercise the whole body (abdominals, back, arms, legs and neck), while sharpening our focus and concentration. And best of all, we will have fun as we work together to be fit and healthy on this journey called life

The Philosophy of Yoga

All Levels: E Cooper Rajeshwari Seay

Yoga is both art and science. One of my teachers called it simply, “a recipe for happiness”. For various reasons which we will discuss in class, the full teachings of yoga still require perseverance and a bit of digging. If your idea of yoga begins and ends with hatha yoga (physical postures and conscious breathing), I invite you to join us on a deep dive into philosophy and techniques that are time proven to help you discover your true potential.
